Had a brief opportunity to observe Carmel Tiger and his now, smaller band, fairly close.
Snow Belle, Adventure, Sego Lily and Carmel Tiger.
On October 14, 2020 Snow Belle’s six month old filly, Eira, was with the band. She appeared to be healthy, in normal condition.
With binoculars a week later, October 21, 2020, we saw Carmel Tiger’s band without her. We continued on our way to Spring #1. On a horse trail about 25 feet from the drinker, we saw Eira’s remains.
It appeared she’d been dead for a couple of days. The condition of her remains made it impossible to determine a cause of death.
